Christmas present from Nordcham
FFAV is delighted to receive the donation from Nordic Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam (Nordcham) from its Christmas party. Nordcham has supported FFAV activities several times and recently with the FFAV Cup 2016. From the Auction in the Christmas party, Nordcham has successfully raised USD 3,450 to support FFAV’s football activities.
Coming to the Christmas party, each member organization donated a certain item for the charity auction. From FFAV, we donated football items and handmade products from Hope Center, which is very meaningful since children with disabilities make the products with recycled materials giving a strong message about environment protection.
The support we received from Nordcham this time again confirms the value of grassroots football activities and the trust from our partners in what we try to achieve here in Vietnam; like what Mr. Sigmund Stromme – Nordcham Chairman shared during his participation in the FFAV Cup 2016. “It is very important for us to sponsor this activity because it is not only about football but also life-skills, equality between children, boys and girls can play, people get cautious about environment and the other skills and values which are being taught at the same time. Children are the future so we’d like to participate in educating the children. When we see the children playing and all the smiles, we can see the power of our support is definitely worth”.
We thank Nordcham for the continuous support to FFAV, and with this contribution we are able to continue our support to the children and youth in Vietnam. We do hope this Christmas present will bring us good luck to our fundraising efforts in 2017.
